Why in the world have I started a blog?

I’ve wanted to write a blog for a long time- this was not the blog I’ve wanted to write, but it’s the one I’ve started.

Why write a blog you don’t want to write? Selfish reasons, of course! But, you’ll hear more about that along the way.

The purpose of this rambling, you ask? Well, for the two or three people who may happen to stumble upon this mess, hopefully you’ll get a bit of a laugh from my self deprecating ways… but for me, it’s a handy dandy way to keep track of my progress.

Progress? Progress of what? Great question, thanks for asking. I’m trying to get less fat. I know I’ll never be a 5’10”, curvaceous, blonde bombshell with legs for miles (I mean, I’m only 5’9″, so there’s that). But I’m hoping to emilinate some of the extra pooch.

So, rules and guidelines? How am I going to achieve this pooch reduction? Easy! Or so I think.

  1. Squats. In the beginning here, I’m aiming for 100 squats per day. This number may increase, it may not.
  2. Sit-ups (well, crunches for now). Attempting 1000 crunches per week. Again, this may change, who knows!
  3. Doing a bit more walking/hiking. We live less than 5 minutes from a state park with gorgeous hiking opportunities- I need to take advantage of this more often than I have.
  4. Eating just a little bit better. I don’t eat poorly now. Yes, I consume my fair share of beer and pizza on the weekend, but I like it – so there.

Oh right- there is a timeline, and a goal amount.

Target date: July 26 

Target loss: 39 pounds 

Alright then. Let’s go!
